if you don't have one, then get the v2, if you have one, then get the parts to make it a v2 when parts are available.

it wouldnt matter to me either way, i'd probably get the older one im sure it would be a lighter setup .. i would change both motors, put a bladegrip on it and m24's before i ever plugged in a lipo anyway so its really the frame and canopy that would be the difference to me and i would bet the V2 has 30-50g over the original. I certainly have no desire to 'upgrade', but the V2 is likely more robust and new pilot friendly. They start you off on 3S with the V2 also and im really happy about using 10$ 2S lipos on mine.

A little extra heft might not hurt HBFP. In the 2s lipo version, it's lighter than it was designed to be.

I've only broken one skid part, but the spiderleg version is fragile and the sturdier one would be one less thing to worry about.
